This App is well conceived and well implemented. I notice that the temperature meters do not work on mine.

Please correct your MU page which sez:
"Fast indexed file search (free until January 1). Free".

Actually it is $2.99 at AppStore. See good video at developer's website, lady with nice voice.

I have happily depended on EasyFind for years, and never found it to miss any files, as several others have claimed.

For $2.99, Toucan is easily worth a try. My stars rating I will correct later if possible, after I have used it a while. Main thing is for MU to correct the price info.

Last week I emailed you THREE crash reports about Desktop and have received no reply. OSX 10.6.8. The first was on crashing 5.1b3. The last two on crashing 5.1.

It crashes when it gets to 'analyzing installed applications'.

Thanks Guys! If it is of any help, I remind you that 5.1b3 also crashed on me, so you might consider the changes you implemented at that point. I am staying at 10.6.8 because the 'upgrades' to OSX have been troublesome to others and offer absolutely no advantages for me. 5.1b2 works for me. If I am the only user reporting crash on 5.1, the only thing possibly different about my setup is that I am a Hughes satellite user. My iMac is late 2009, Intel Core Duo, 8GB memory.

OKAY! I give up! I upgraded from 10.6.8 to 10.8.2.

I found that ML does not offer me anything THAT I NEED beyond what SL provided. But even more surprised that I did not have to learn anything extra to use ML.

Keep up The Good Work!

No disappoints here. Yes, it is highly intuitive to use, but go try View/ Zoom/ Automatically Resize.
I like to easily get to a 2 page layout that I can easily read.
I read a lot of PDF and I love this thing!

Intel, Mac OS X 10.6 or later"

is wrong. Should be 10.7.

Unless I do not understand what "REMOVED support for Finder 10.6" means.

Correct me if I am wrong.

For you grouses out there. After running MacUpdate, I toyed with the listing and learned some unexpected things. Listing by app name, I found apps that I had installed in more than one place. I reviewed my 'skip' items and discarded some of them. I sorted by date and reconsidered each app that was not supported by MU, and discarded several, as I did not recall downloading them, or I now had something better.

My remarks on the current software version:
1. As others have said, needs OS recognition.
2. I would cheerfully pay TWICE as much for MU if the really obviously bogus twit software were screened from MU. e.g., software that pretends to do tasks that are already native to OS X. Reputable reviewers comments would serve to identify these.

The grumbling complainers seem to forget the value of the MU reviews in selecting what you decide to put on your computer.

Not for website novices - like me - at this date. Maybe later! Sloppy tutorials. Many screaming curses today. The recurring flaw in the tutorials is failure to tell you that you have to do A (or how to finish doing A) before doing B will work. It took a lot of frustrating guessing at why the program was ignoring my wishes. Having successfully crossed that bridge numerous times by trial and error, I do not hesitate to declare this inadequacy in the tutorials.

The topic of webpage borders and grids is so sketchy that the writer seems to be trying to avoid it. I insert a standard template and preview it in my browser, but only the top 2/3 of the standard template appears in the browser. Sizing the webpage to satisfactorily appear on many different kinds of computers must rate as a key topic of concern, but I am still clueless about that.

To avoid using HTML, I was ready to love this software, but this affair is too problematic for me to handle for a while.
